— The FBI has a problem with the FBI’s manpower richmond headquarters, according to a scathing report that was released Wednesday.
In the report, the FBI describes a “vast array of concerns” about the FBI manpower headquarters, which includes “the lack of adequate staffing” and a lack of “basic planning” to manage the agency’s massive operations.
The report also accuses the FBI of ignoring problems it has experienced in its use of informants.
It notes the FBI has not had enough money to maintain a permanent staff, and it is not working with the state to address its staffing shortage.
The report also claims that it is “lacking the capability to monitor the operation of the facilities” and has not “developed an integrated management structure” to help with the coordination of its operations.
It says the FBI needs to hire more people, which would be funded through grants and contracts, and “ensure that employees have access to adequate staffing.”
It also notes that the FBI is “not conducting sufficient surveillance of criminal activities” and that the bureau needs to be more transparent in its activities.
The FBI declined to comment on the report.
